If you'd like to read a Mike Sweeney update, here's a link to an article from the San Francisco Chronicle. But be warned, the writer takes multiple shots at the Royals, including these gems:
"At the very least, Sweeney, who knows nothing about playing for a winner, wants to believe the A's can do damage."
"Early in camp, he was taking batting practice when Beane walked by. On one swing, his bat slipped from his hands and hit the back of the cage, and he quipped, 'The Royals are small-market, but at least we had rosin.' Not much else, however."
"He's hitting .455 in seven exhibition games and seems a nice fit. If nothing else, it's not Kansas City."
